“PATRIOTS’ DAY LAMENT”
by Whistleblower War Hero Ollie Hackworth
Remember when the Public and Media idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the other way, ignoring her well-known substance abuse and tumultuous life with singer Bobby Brown? Charlie Sheen was 45 and his story was all over the news because he was a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious. Lindsay Lohan was 24 and her story was all over the news because she was a celebrity drug addict and thief. The same can be said about drug addict Philip Seymour Hoffman who died with a needle stuck in his arm.
Meanwhile, Justin Allen, 23; Brett Linley, 29; Matthew Weikert, 29; Justus Bartett, 27; Dave Santos, 21; Jesse Reed, 26; Matthew Johnson, 21; Zachary Fisher, 24; Brandon King, 23; Christopher Goeke, 23; and Sheldon Tate 27 were all Marines who gave their lives for you.
There was no media for them; not even a mention of their names. They were young men who most likely came from rural America seeking a chance to better themselves and to serve this country. Rest In Peace, and THANK YOU, TROOPS.
